COVID-19 and ANU

16 March 2020

As a precautionary measure and based upon the advice from our experts, ANU will cancel all public and social events from Monday 16 March until the end of semester one, Saturday 20 June.

This is a precautionary measure that we know will be disappointing for many, but our aim is to reduce opportunities for the virus to spread by limiting activity on campus without disrupting our essential teaching and research activities. 

Cancellation and postponement will extend to all discretionary events including ticketed and non-ticketed public events, public lectures and concerts.  

Essential activities related to teaching and research, including tutorials, lectures, staff meetings and community services like childcare and cafes will continue as normal at this stage. 

This applies to all CPAS events, including the Wholesome Show live show and Professor Ankeny's talk this week. 

More information is available on the ANU page on COVID-19.

There is also more information available on how staff and students and others in the ANU community can get crisis and counselling support
